I led the 5th and last pitch. The view from the top was stunning, but due to the light-pollution we couldn't get a good shot with my Cannon. Oh well, guess we have to go back! As you can see here though, we did get pretty high!
Here are the best shots from Saturday:
Me on Lead
Allen on Lead
Duffy on Lead
Allen Leading the 10c
Me top-roping the 11a - I got about half wayBend, Oregon, and enjoyed some food and microbrews at Deschutes brewery. I would DEFINITELY recommend that place!
Monday morning, before heading out around 2pm, Duffy, Allen and I got up and put up 2 last routes: a classic mixed trad-sport route and a nice 10b arete climb. Duffy led the trad route beautifully, especially considering it was pretty run out. I really enjoyed climbing it after him, since I rarely get the chance to crack climb.
As you can see, we were a bit sketched by the start
But he quickly got it under control
Here I am on top rope - you can see it's such a cool line under the roof
Allen on the Arete
Me - this is what I look like when I'm WAY sketched out
In all, it was a really amazing trip. We're actually looking to head back over the 4th of July, so keep your eyes peeled for those, and I'm sure many other, more epic climbing pics to come. For now, me and my new lizard friend bid you adeu. Thanks for reading!
